A panel discussion is a live or virtual discussion about a specific topic amongst a selected group of panellists, who share differing perspectives, in front of a large audience. It is often employed in a meeting, conference or convention. The panel is typically facilitated by a “moderator” who guides the panel and the audience through the event. The panel, typically 3-4 experts or practitioners in the field, shares facts, opinions and responds to audience questions either through questions curated by the moderator or taken from the audience directly. The moderator’s task is to organize effective and result oriented discussion on topic questions. The panel session typically lasts for 60-90 minutes.
